Textbooks and Supplies Donated by PCBC AWANA Club

The Putnam City Baptist Church AWANA club in Oklahoma City, OK, USA, donated numerous textbooks and supplies for the Children of WISDOM COMMUNITY SCHOOL. The children who are part of the PCBC AWANA club gave offerings for the textbooks. LIVING WELL (on behalf of the AWANA club) purchased the textbooks and supplies in January while in Ndola.

The material were presented to the school by Darla Holinsworth, a PCBC AWANA club leader and member of the LIVING WELL mission team.

Water for Children of Wisdom and Others

Our water well continues to bless the children of WISDOM 
as well as the whole community in the Mwenye Compound.

Special Thanks to Lakeview Baptist Church

We especially want to thank all of the kind people of Lakeview Baptist Church for making it possible for the children of WISDOM and the community to have clean, clear water all year.

The Rotary Club furnished a sign with acknowledgement to those who furnished the well.

Knowing that signs don't always stay in place, LIVING WELL secured a permanent plaque for the well.

Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in hima well of water springing up to eternal life.   John 4:14

It is permanent!
Everyone who comes to draw water will see this plaque
just below the handle for the pump.

Local Press Covers Dedication of Borehole

We want to thank the local press, including the Times of Zambia, for publicizing the good work accomplished at Wisdom Community School. The school and community now have fresh, clear, clean water that is in adequate supply all year.

The local TV news, radio, and newspaper gave reports about the new water!

The borehole was drilled through a collaboration of Better World (operator of the school), Ndola-Mukuba Rotary Club (handled the drilling), LIVING WELL Ministry (Oklahoma City, raises funds to support and develop the school), and Lakeview Baptist Church (donated all of the funds for the borehole).
